The Water's Lovely

 Nine years after the supposedly accidental drowning of their stepfather, sisters Ismay and Heather still live in the family house in London where the drowning occurred.  Ismay is haunted by the suspicion that her sister was responsible for their stepfather's death and feels that her repressed memories can no longer be ignored. She records her account of the incident on a tape, which goes missing when her purse is stolen. The person who finds the tape attempts to blackmail Ismay, with resulting plot twists and turns. The story is one of suspense and psychological intrigue with a mix of eccentric British characters to keep the story moving quickly.  Highly recommended. Check our catalog
